Givers Unite!

The GoodGiving Challenge raised more than $1.3 million dollars in 2015 for outstanding nonprofits in Central and Eastern Kentucky. This year, mark your calendars for November 29 through December 31, 2016 to remember all the reasons YOU are a giver.

We at Blue Grass Community Foundation are proud to be the place where people go to give - of their passion, money, and ideas to enhance the quality of life in Central and Eastern Kentucky. We help individuals, families, businesses, communities and nonprofit organizations establish charitable funds, guide their resources to support causes they care about, meet community needs and make a difference.

Nonprofits! Register June 15-30

Last year, 4,355 unique donors just like yours because they believe that what YOU do makes the Bluegrass a better place to live, work and play! This year we have made it even easier to participate in the biggest giving celebration in Central and Eastern Kentucky. You can watch the GoodGiving Guide Challenge Garage: Your 15 Point Inspection - Introduction to the Challenge Webinar here to learn about this year's changes!
